Practice Location & Info.

Practice Location

My private practice office is located in close proximity to downtown Milwaukee, the East Side, Marquette and UW Milwaukee Universities.  My office is easily accessible from points north and south via Lake Drive and route 794, points west via route 94. Street parking is available without charge.  The new “Hop” Streetcar stops at Cathedral Square, as well as Jackson & Juneau, both a short walk, making travel from the Third and Fifth Wards easy! 

This is a quiet and private office within a historic office building of other private therapists and psychiatrists known as Therapies East Associates, LLC. I frequently see individuals who want to be seen privately, work with one person and someone experienced.

For some individuals the surety that insurers do not have access to your record helps you to feel more comfortable and deepen your therapy as you feel confident to do so.

Telephone/Video Conferencing Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis.

I provide therapy by telephone and/or video-conferencing offering flexibility, discretion, privacy, and health safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Licensure regulations for the practice of psychology at this time, require you be a resident of Wisconsin or Pennsylvania to work with me in this way.

Appointments

I work with you to establish times for the frame of our work.  We find stable times that work for both our schedules and meet a minimum of once weekly,   

Fees

Sessions are on a fee-for-service basis.  I offer fee adjustment as appropriate. I also submit claims on your behalf as an out-of-network provider and reimbursement comes to you according to your policy coverage. I recommend that you contact your insurance company to clarify your out-of-network benefit coverage and the terms of your policy reimbursement. 

I see many clients for a 50 minute sessions.  The cost is: $185.

I see some clients for 45 minutes. The cost is:  $165.

I accept payment by credit card, HSA, FSA at the time of service.  

Why Pay for Therapy Out-Of-Pocket?

I’ve was an in-network provider with insurances for many decades and have seen how some insurer’s involvement in the therapy process may compromise your ability to decide the best course of treatment. I have seen therapy curtailed by insurers.  

I discuss your therapy goals with you, make recommendations, and we talk about treatment options without a third party dictating the plan.  I also believe that your privacy and confidentiality are essential to the work.  I realize that an investment in your mental health and well-being is a big decision; I have worked with many, many, clients committed to a process where they have the choice and freedom to complete their therapy in their own time, not on insurers’ terms and time frame.
